Primary Lymphoma of Bone

  • Mario Campanacci


Non Hodgkin lymphomas are neoplasms of monoclonal, malignant B or T lymphocytes. This tumor is usually multifocal or disseminated, involving the lymphnodes, and/or extralymphatic organs and sites, such as the spleen, bone marrow, liver, lungs, central nervous system, gastro-intestinal tract, skin, and others.
